I don't get "evil" vibes in sleep paralysis, but I do find it terrifying.
My opinion is that how you react probably has to do with your own fears – I fear being trapped, and I feel trapped, so I panic.
Other people fear evil from outside, so that's what they feel.
But I have no evidence for that and it could just as well be that I don't feel evil because I'm less attuned to the presence of evil around me, or
less psychically inclined, or whatever.
I don't think there's any way to really answer this, since it's such a subjective experience.
edit because I forgot to address the other part of the question:
I always have broken episodes of sleep paralysis by finally getting my body to move - they only last as long as my attempts are unsuccessful. And when
I break them, I wake up fully, usually with a serious physical jerk (though I don't think I've ever fallen out of bed).
